    My MacBook Pro started randomly shutting down and not powering up.

    The Apple Store has said the logic board needs replacing at a cost of £469.

    I asked about goodwill with the machine being less than 4 years old but was told there is none.

    Has anyone managed to get a replacement under EU consumer law or managed to gets third party repair?

    I was in a similar situation with my 2018, just over 2 years old and the screen failed. Tried to go the EU Consumer law and was told that because i didn't purchase it from apple directly I would have to claim against the store that I bought it from who was currys/pc world, they were no help and said it was apples problem. apple quoted me 710 for a new screen, got it replaced at max burns for 450.




  • I got a logic board replaced by Apple years ago .That is because someone told me that the logic board has a known fault.

    If you can find out if the logic board has a known fault then the under EU consumer law , if you ring apple in cork , and be strong about it being a known fault then they might replace - that is what I did.

    I bought that mac from apple website.
